See scenes of the old town from the canal that runs through it on Yanagawa River Boat. The traditional wooden boats, steered with a pole by a boatman at the back of the vessel, float slowly around the canal system of the historic castle town. Along the way, you'll take in sights of the trees, traditional Japanese storehouse architecture, and daily life in the town. Watch how the steerers carefully guide the boats and their handful of passengers, with the peaceful, ambling tours lasting around 1 hour and 10 minutes. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Yanagawa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yanagawa River Boat and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • I ride again at work, by boatman also somewhat different, the different feels depending on the season. Over the River to say almost no flow in the moat is a gentle cruise.

  • I think one of the purpose of your visit Yanagawa look different depending on river management company, and boatman, and course satisfaction, but fun is River flickered. Various flowers blooming in the Guide while humming a song of the boatman in slightly accented commentary and Yanagawa from Kitahara hakushu, Riverside was healed.

  • Very quiet small town. The station is away from the river boat. The ballade in boat on the canals is nice and scenic. The guide very welcoming and sing local songs during the trip on the canals. Some bridges are very low and it must be put down in the boat to pass under the bridges. 1000 yen per person for 30 minutes
